Jeep have announced its first baby SUV, the Renegade.
Jeep have given the Renegade a modern take on the Willys MB WW2 Jeep, to us it looks a bit more like a Nissan Cube and Suzuki Jimny cross breeding. But it looks ok?
It features full time 4×4, up to 8.1 inches of wheel articulation and 8.7 inches of ground clearance, a 5 mode selectable terrain system, and it can put 100% of the engines torque through any single wheel for optimal grip.
Being a global model it features 16 powertrain combinations, including:
It is also the first small SUV to have a nine speed automatic gearbox, this will be offered on the 2.0 and 2.4 litre engines.
For those wanting a more extreme Jeep Renegade you should opt for the Tailhawk model, this top of the range model also features:
It will go on sale later this year in over 100 countries.
